About Florence

florence-ponte-vecchio

Florence is one of our favorite cities in Italy. A city with an envied position as the center of Renaissance Art, perhaps the most influential to that era. Michaelangelo became the personal artist to the Medici family which funded and helped tutor him.

In the 14th and 15th centuries, wealthy Florentines commissioned elaborate buildings and decorated them with works of art by the emerging artisans of the time. Ruled by the Medici family during this period, Florence became the center of the Renaissance.
